22 oz bomber thanks to Lum yet again for another fine beer. Served this one up in a big, manly, Germanic, mug. Just feels right.

A: This is brown. I mean brown. Real brown. Held to light, this beer is still brown. This brown has a slight red hue to it, but this beer is brown. Poured a finger of slightly off white head that quickly receeded to a half finger but held on for quite a while from there. The head has no stick to it though, so very little if any lace on the glass. Has a good amount of slow moving carbonation bouncing around in there. This is a good looking doppelbock.

S: Smell is malty. Not a chocolate or caramel malt though. This one has a really nice bread an butter malt going on here. Just incredibly appetizing. There is a slight amount of raisins and dates coming out as well. But that bready malt is so damned nice.

T: Taste is a bit more complex than that aroma but that malt is still the showstopper. Just a nice bready malt that has a nice butter quality to it as well. Just a big hearty flavor. Then the fruits come out. Some raisins, apricots, dates, apple and pear can all be picked out of sips. ABV is just very barely noticable in the flavor. The only touch of sweetness comes from a bit of cinnamon and maple syrup in here. Just very good.

M: Medium bodied beer that has some weight to it. Sits a little heavy on the palate. Carbonation is much lighter than the look suggests. has a pretty nice creaminess to it that is very smooth. ABV is barely noticable on the palate at all. Aftertaste is mostly just some good bready malt flavors. Actually pretty refreshing considering how heavy this feels. Very nice again.

D: For a doppelbock this is greatly drinkable. The sweetness is very mild. The heartiness of this beer is amazing. This doesn't have the sweetness that most doppelbocks have. Instead it is more like a meal with all the bread and fruit coming through. I am going to have no problem putting this bomber down and i can probably put down another if I had it. Overall, a good to great doppelbock that is well done and damned tasty.

22oz Bomber

Wine Warehouse

I picked this one up on a recent trip through Virginia. Troegenator fills this pilsner glass with a garnet liquid that sports good clarity. A beige head grew to one-plus fingers on the pour and fell rather quickly to a skimming with a decent collar. A couple small chunks of lace stick to the glass here and there. Not a bad looking brew but the head could have stuck around a bit longer. A quick swirl brings the head back briefly.

The nose is rich and inviting. Moist banana bread kicks things off and before I know it a rich nuttiness joins the fray. There is a nice fruity presence in the background; dates, prunes and figs come to mind immediately. Underlying currents of sweet booze roll through deep in the back. As it warms some lightly toasted grains make themselves known.

The flavor follows the aroma stride for stride. Nutty banana bread leads the way and never lets up but there are flashes of dates, prunes, and figs. This beer has been growing on me since I first opened it and is now very enjoyable. There's a pleasant sugary sweetness that adds some depth to the overall flavor.

The body is leaning toward the full side with a mild carbonation that allows some stick and a velvety feel. A little heat gathers in each cheek.

This bomber is going down quite easily. As a matter of fact I wouldn't mind having another. I can feel the alcohol kicking in a little bit which would make this brew dangerous.

I like most of what Troegs does and this is no exception. I would have liked to pick up a few of these when back East but unfortunately didn't. This is definitely worth a try.
